    They are Air-Tight, seal to Vaper-barrier or run VB over the top or install a rated box above the fixtures in the ceiling.

    We typically see vapour barrier tape around where the wire penetrates the vapour barrier or a vapour barrier box around them.

    Thank you for the answers, what I have seen so far are the transparent plastic boots. I'm not convinced it creates a seal at the vapor barrier. I've even caught some of them taped in a manner that allows air flow
    I'll follow up on that and will try to come up with something.
    Thanks
